Program description

The mathematical contribution towards the design of industrial products and processes is increasing.

The Mathematics for Industry program is designed to develop problem solving abilities that focus on the mathematical constituents of design processes taking place in industrial environments. This course concentrates on mathematical techniques and the development, use and analyzes possibilities of mathematical models. There will also be a link with science and management studies.

Mathematics for Industry Program Outline

The application scope of mathematics in industry is wide. The program is therefore divided into three specializations: an orientation towards Technical Application (T-orientation), an orientation towards Communication and Information (C/I-orientation), and an orientation towards Business Applications (B-orientation). The program of twenty four months can be roughly split into two equal parts of twelve months: a course part and a training part. Courses are specializing or broadening dependent on the selected orientation. In the training part we distinguish workshops, themes, and projects. In the first year, trainees carry out three short term industrial projects, four themes and two workshops; in these activities trainees work together to solve problems introduced by representatives from industry. 

Program Objectives
The Design Traineeship in Mathematics for Industry aims to provide students of graduate level with a broad postgraduate education qualifying them for mathematics-oriented positions in industry; e.g. in the design of industrial products or in business processes. The focus is on training in solving industrial problems through mathematical means, developing social and communicative skills and writing reports.

Instruction modes
Group work, lectures, practical assignment, project work.

Mathematical Modeling; Social and Communicative Skills; Advanced Mathematical Physics; Advanced Operations Research; Queueing Theory; Statistics Computational Mechanics System Theory; Signal Analysis; Software Engineering.
